Over the past few years, fantastic community members have put in their time for sponsored “danders” in various locations for charity. Many thousands have been raised and many blisters earned. A few of us have always liked the idea of going alongside these fine folk to raise money. But there has been a unavoidable issue.
We hate walking.
So, enter the “dash4dosh” (yes, it’s a facebook page. Please like and share it). Myself, Sean Cull, Chris Harris, Gregg Edred, joining some of our friends in Denmark and even potentially a few support cars are doing something silly.
We are riding bikes from our homes past the arctic circle and back to Wales, UK, to meet up with other community members. The final route is not sorted as yet, but it goes something like this for me.
Belfast->Stranraer->Preston->Harwich->Ejsberg->through Denmark heading east->the east coast of Sweden->Finland->West to North West Norway->South the west coast of Norway->back to Denmark->West through Denmark->back to UK->Wales->Belfast.
Mileage… a lot (no idea on numbers, but roughly 4,000 miles at least) on very little motorway. We are paying for all of this ourselves, but have setup a joint charity page for MacMillan Cancer Support. Please support me, or choose anyone else from the team and support them (or all of us,but I don’t want to be mean!).
We are geeks. You will be able to track us on the trip via a page linked to my iPhone.
Any help is appreciated of course. I have some ideas to try to get corporates and geeks to throw some cash at it too. These will follow later. So please do spread the word, and if you have money to spare, please sponsor. If not, some good vibes, support and sharing/linking the page would be appreciated.
